A Confederate flag was seen flying over Huntsville Hospital this evening. We received viewer tips about a Confederate flag seen flying above the Hospital. We sent our cameras out and, sure enough, found it flying above the hospital's parking deck. We reached out to hospital officials for an explanation - why they say the flag will remain undisturbed. 

A Madison County inmate who escaped work release 11 days ago is back in custody tonight. Matthew Alton Meggs was located in the Birmingham area. The 2002 Chevrolet Suburban officials said he stole in order to escape was also located. Meggs is currently in the Jefferson County Detention Facility awaiting transfer back to Madison County.

Questions tonight after an officer's gun discharges during an arrest. It happened in an apartment on Sandlin Road in Decatur. Police were there to arrest a man on several warrants. The gun discharged as authorities stormed the man's home after he refused to open the door. Join me for additional details on these stories and more tonight at 10.

News anchor Jim Abath is sitting in with me tonight. We'll see you then!
